Materials Needed:

  • foundation
  • concealer
  • loose powder
  • brownish-red pencil liner
  • pink and darker pink blush
  • white/silver mineral eye shadow
  • white pencil liner
  • eyeshadow primer
  • shimmery white eye shadow
  • light and dark brown eye shadows
  • Kelly-, lime- and forest-green eye shadows
  • shimmering green pencil liner
  • black liquid liner
  • eyelash curler
  • mascara
  • false lashes (2 pairs or one dramatic one)
  • eyelash glue
  • bright red pencil liner and lipstick
  • white liquid liner
  • green glitter liner
  • yellow or light green glitter
  • glittered silk leaves
  • loose powder
  • red lip-gloss
  • green dress or corset (optional)
  • green tights (optional)

Apply Foundation and Blush

Apply full-coverage foundation and cover any skin imperfections with concealer (Image 1). Set with a generous dusting of loose powder for a porcelain finish (Image 2). Define your eyebrows with a brownish-red liner pencil (Image 3). Apply pink blush on the apples of your cheeks, blending up to your high cheekbones. Contour with a slightly darker pink blush below cheekbone (Image 4). Add a touch of white/silver mineral eye shadow on top of the blush (Image 5).

Prep Eyes

Use a white eyeliner pencil to define under brow bone then smudge (Image 1). Add white eyeliner pencil at the inner corners of eyes and blend out onto lid (Image 2). Finally, apply eye shadow primer to lids (Image 3).

Apply Eye Color

Start with a shimmery white eye shadow and apply everywhere the white liner was applied then blend it across your eyelid (Image 1). Add a light brown eye shadow to the outside corner of lids (Image 2). Follow with a darker brown eye shadow in the crease and blend well (Image 3). The goal is to have your shadow fade from white to light brown to dark brown. Add some green eye shadow to the darkest part of the brown shadow in your crease (Image 4). Line your waterline, which is the inside of your eyelid, with a shimmering green pencil liner. Extend the color even below the waterline onto your lash line, and make sure the green is vibrant (Image 5).
